The Montserrat flag is blue, with the flag of the UK in the upper hoist-side quadrant and the Montserratian coat of arms centered in the outer half of the flag. The arms feature a woman in green dress, Erin, the female personification of Ireland, standing beside a yellow harp and embracing a large dark cross with her right arm. Erin and the harp are symbols of Ireland reflecting the territory's Irish ancestry. Blue represents awareness, trustworthiness, determination, and righteousness. (ref: CIA World Factbook, Jan. 2014)
